Homeward Bound

While the concept of affordable housing is often misunderstood, the reality of affordable homes helps stabilize individuals and families who could have easily been tax burdens to the community had they been unable to keep up financially.

To provide homes that workers can afford in Westchester County, where the median cost of a home is among the nation’s most expensive, allows teachers, police, fire fighters, seniors, people with disabilities and other productive members of our community to live within a reasonable commute to their jobs.

Homeward Bound provides information, technical assistance and education to local officials, residents and other stakeholders to assist in developing affordable housing plans and projects that will get widespread community support.

Homeward Bound partners recruit volunteers and work with advocacy groups to make sure that all people have a place to call home.
